Wouldn’t you know it, within minutes of hitting the ‘publish’ button on my ‘Maisy & The Missing Sun’ post yesterday guess who made an appearance? That old sun must have read it and ‘liked’ it, although a comment would have been nice…his general appearance though more than made up for that, even though perhaps making a bit of a fool out of me.
Stepping outside to marvel at this lovely sight I was delighted to see that some of my bulbs are already in flower. I do love my garden but I’m sorry to say I can’t remember what these are exactly, not crocuses, but some kind of iris I think? Just grabbed the bulbs and put them in last October because I thought the colour looked rather lovely.
I also have not dared to mention anything about Sweet Robin lately. That’s because, horror of horrors, I haven’t seen him! Until yesterday, that is. Every day the blue tits, sparrows, even a starling or two, have been very active around the bird feeders, and each day I’ve been hoping beyond hope to catch sight of my little robin. So. great delight then when yesterday, I saw a quick flash of red, then another, swoop across the garden stopping at the feeders and there, in full view, not only Sweet Robin (of course it’s him, who else?) but his little friend too. They didn’t stay long, not enough to take any pics, but I’m grateful for the guest appearance. He obviously just wanted to drop by and quickly say Hi. Probably wanted to show off his girlfriend too, and I must say, she looks lovely.
As I sat down to have a quick read of the paper after all this great excitement, my little boy (my moggie Eddie that is) decided that he, too, would rather like to have a read of the day’s news. He loves newspaper and this never fails to happen. It’s really annoying when there is a particularly interesting piece I’m engrossed in only to suddenly find a rather large black cat suddenly plonked down on the very paragraph I am halfway through reading. Aside from all that, however, it is quite endearing.
Hope your yesterday brought good things and that today brings more of the same.
